EDIT: As pointed out to me today, the original version of this comic TOTALLY wasn’t how photo negatives work. I am an idiot, and have fixed it. New comic tomorrow.

Okay, is today’s strip supposed to be oddly coloured?
And Penny punches another hole into the 4th wall.
Haha, clever one.
@tim_gueguen: Think color inversion. Y’know, like photo negatives.
If the picture is a negative, why aren’t their teeth and eyes black?
I suppose it’d make them look really evil. Hmm.
-An incredibly pedantic reader you should ignore
I was expecting some zombie reference… but no, Penny’s right. It really hurt.
I love your comic by the way, ‘been reading it forever.
……So the clouds are really black?
Lol James Cameron blue.
Only took 471 strips, but finally run into one I don’t get. Maybe because I can’t access the alt text on a smartphone.
It’s a photography joke. I’m guessing you newbs have never had the misfortune to deal with cameras that used film instead of flash memory.
We’re getting old, Alex
OK, now I get it.
Trombone, and *boom boom crash* too.
Wait, shouldn’t the linework be white, and the clouds black? It’s kind of only selectively negative as far as I can tell.
Everyone loves a punny dreadful comic.
I just love how Penny seems to exist outside the comics in the real world. She’s the only charakter (of the comic) who might know it’s a comic they are living in. Don’t know if there even is a comic or tv-Series who does this kind of jokes. great stuff! ^^
@digital Pictues: Have you never seen the negative image of a non-digital photo-camera? they ain’t that old… or are we? am I ?!!?
Oh, I guessed it was a photography joke. It’s just that when I think of old negatives I think of them being different colours than that.
@Kgummy: you are right, and I spent some time fixing it. Hey, did you know there’s an “invert” button in photoshop? That would’ve been useful to me yesterday.
Ah. New coloring makes the comic make sense. Was a bit of a head scratcher before.
The 4th wall is Penny’s bitch.
Kinda curious what the original looked like.
Is it still accessible somewhere?
@Mr. Non Sequitur: thx. I didn’t that was really a thing. Nico allready said something about 4th wall before, but I didn’t get what he ment. The Simpsons made some jokes this way too, but exept that I haven’t seen many 4th-Wall-Jokes, yet.
I actually prefer the way it looked before, but oh well
They’re so negative, they had to switch spots!
I did what probaby did everybody else, downloaded the picture and turned it negative.
I think the white border and black background actually looks better than normal though the black world baloons make them look like supervillains.
Pseudoedit: This would be a great meta-joke – inverting colours of a comic changes voices too, not just colours.
